VERLOT — When someone needs to call 911 from the Mountain Loop Highway, the best option often has been the pay phone at the Verlot ranger station. Now the phone is slated for removal, causing alarm for police and firefighters. The Mountain Loop Highway provides access to some of the region’s most popular, beautiful and dangerous outdoor destinations. The Big Four Ice Caves alone draw some 50,000 visitors annually.
EVERETT — The city is making progress on bringing apartment complexes into compliance with the requirements for fire alarms. The two-year mark is approaching for that effort. It started after the fatal New Year’s Eve fire at the Bluffs apartments in 2015. The Bluffs didn’t have fire alarms. Neighbors didn’t know what was happening until they saw smoke and flames outside their windows. Some people had to throw their children to safety from upper stories.
EVERETT — The Everett mayor’s race managed to get even closer Wednesday evening. Judy Tuohy led Cassie Franklin by seven votes in updated ballot tallies. Tuohy had 4,804 votes, or 44.6 percent of ballots counted so far. Franklin had 44.53 percent. The next round of results is expected Thursday. About 6,700 ballots remain to be counted for Everett, according to the Snohomish County elections officials.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
